    "I wish I had listened to this years ago"
    Would you listen to Maximum Speed Reading again? Why?

    This audio book contains a lot of good information about reading and learning.


    Any additional comments?

    My reading speed was 270 WPM when I first started and by the time I was halfway through, my reading speed was 640. I was wary of the claims of this audio book before, but I am very happy that my time and efforts have paid off. If you are a native English speaker and you want to learn how to read faster and retain more of what you read, this is a great book for you.

    "Workbook and Video is included"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Maximum Speed Reading to be better than the print version?

    I was hesitant to purchase when I saw that the workbook or video that the author spoke about was not included.<br/><br/>If you look below the bullet points you will see the following text which will send you to a download for the workbook and a link to the Nightingale site that will send you to the video.<br/><br/>Download the accompanying reference guide.<br/>PLEASE NOTE: This title has supplemental material associated with it.

    "Review and Usage Notes (How to get the PDF/Video)"
    What did you love best about Maximum Speed Reading?

    Quick, gets right into the topic. Lots of good reading, learning, and studying tips. I'm already reading quite a bit faster and getting through books I want to understand is feeling much less intimidating.


    Would you recommend Maximum Speed Reading to your friends? Why or why not?

    Sure. Especially for anyone in school. NOTE: There isn't a story (hence rating it 3 stars for story).


    What about Howard Berg’s performance did you like?

    He's funny and easy to listen to. Moves the material along at a decent pace (though I used the speed-up function quite a bit).


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Maximum Speed Reading?

    The reading and note taking techniques.


    Any additional comments?

    The PDF is included!! Just go to your library on the Audible desktop site and the PDF will be listed with your audio book. There is also a link to see the referenced video online. AND. . . I found out too late that there are tracks for all of the timed drills - including study music - on the last two tracks of the audio book. So you don't have to use your own timer.

    "Where's the Workbook?"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This could have been a 4 star experience if the workbook was included and mailed to the listener.


    Would you recommend Maximum Speed Reading to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend this because it refers to the workbook often and the workbook is not included.


    What three words best describe Howard Berg’s voice?

    Bronx, Nasal, Humorous


    Any additional comments?

    I don't think this book should be sold on Audible because it does not come with the workbook nor the video. Although it has useful information, I wish I could return this due to this fact.

    "No workbooks"

    If I knew I needed a workbook I would have not purchased this.
    This should not be sold. The book references a work book frequently and this audio does not come with that workbook

    "Workbook and video?"

    How is one supposed to follow the program without the woirkboiok and video? Pointless! Waste of time!
